Novo Nordiskhas announced a number of enhancements to its FlexPen prefilled insulin injection device, which includes a simple twist mechanism to attach and detach needles. This makes it the first pen device able to use a new generation of needles, the company says.

FlexPen is the most widely used prefilled insulin device in the world, the company notes.
